Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192860941, Paperback)

This unique dictionary is an authoritative and up-to-date reference book on all aspects of the study of plants. While many of the over 5,000 entries in The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Botany have been taken from the highly acclaimed Oxford Dictionary of Natural History, a substantial number have been written especially for this volume. Completely comprehensive, this dictionary offers concise and accessible explanations of terms from biogeology, evolution, earth history, and all the earth sciences, as well as up-to-date entries on more current fields of interest such as ecology, genetics, plant physiology, biochemistry, and cytology. In addition, the book offers world-wide coverage of taxonomic groups and takes full account of recent taxonomical revisions. One-third of the entries are devoted to taxa, from bacteria and fungi to the main groups of flowering and non-flowering plants. Brief biographical sketches of important botanists are also included.
With almost twice the number of entries as any similar dictionary, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Botany is perfect for amateur botanists, and anyone interested in the world around us.
